    Never bought a record.
    Was always into some other music when any of his successful stuff released.
    What happened with the recent London concerts? Did they actually happen?

    'Charlie's Angel' Farrah Fawcett dies at 62

    By LYNN ELBER, AP Television Writer Lynn Elber, Ap Television Writer – 37 mins ago
    LOS ANGELES – A winsome smile, tousled hair and unfettered sensuality were Farrah Fawcett's trademarks as a sex symbol and 1970s TV star in "Charlie's Angels." But as her life drew to a close, she captivated the public in a far different way: as a cancer patient who fought for, then surrendered, her treasured privacy to document her struggle with the disease and inspire others.

    Fawcett, 62, died Thursday morning at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, nearly three years after being diagnosed with anal cancer. Ryan O'Neal, the longtime companion who returned to her side when she became ill, was with her.

    "After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away," O'Neal said. "Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."

    I am the No1 fan of Clapton, he used to live up the road from me and I've spent many a night in his company, driven home in the early hours in one of his Ferrari's, never forget it!

    well get ur people to speak to my people to confirm that he died after turning white.

    reminds me of a funny joke.

    an indigineous aussie was hit by a car and died, went to heaven and St Peter said at the gates
    "your time is too soon you must go back"

    The black dude said
    "great, do i get a choice what as"

    St Peter said:
    "sure take a pick, what do you wanna go back as?"

    The black dude says:

    "I wanna go back as dog turd"

    St Peter said:
    "why?"

    The black dude said:
    "well no one will step on me and after 3 days i turn white"

    There's more of that happens than I once would've thought.
    Three bad C cases amongst my family and friends have seen the long departed ex come to be there in the time of ultimate need.
    People can be fairly decent at times.

    Edit
    And then there's Goober. Strewth Goob', a joke about dog turd!
    I'd disapprove if I could stop smiling.

    I wasn't fussed on his music, but I think he had a very sad life and hopefully now is at peace. At least now he won't have to worry about the ridiculous pace of the proposed tour - stress induced heart attack?

    Be interesting to hear what the actual cause of death was. Cardiac arrest or heart attack is the endpoint of a multitude of causes including drug overdose
